I created a layout with photos I took lots of years ago (I think, I'm getting old ;-) ). We did an exercise with our red cross group.

I used red & white on my layout.

Red and White

I used some of my favorite red paper with white crosses and some texture paste with a cross stencil to create this birthday layout!

Special Guest Designer Inspiration - Giorgia Rossini

Happy Friday, scrappy friends!

Today we have a special treat for you - more guest design team inspiration from Giorgia Rossini for Challenge #387 - National Frozen Food Month and National Nutrition Month.



Fist of all, here is a little about Giorgia:

My name is Giorgia Rossini and I am Italian. I am a Radiation Technologist with a huge passion for crafts. Scrapbooking is my happy place: I really need to have time for me, to be creative, after working in the hospital. I love to preserve memories and to create cards for my friends and family. I started 5 years ago and never stopped since then! Scrapbooking makes me happy, and I especially love the "preserving memories" part of it: I love to look at my LO and mini and feel again those feelings. I am married and me and my husband love to travel the world: our travels are well represented in my scrap. I love mixing colors and patterns. I don't have a precise style, I love to work with inspiration of the moment and try products.

Here is Giorgia's beautiful layout of a lunch date with her hubby in a restaurant of a chef who is also on TV shows:




Thank you so much, Giorgia. for joining us this week! To see more of Giorgia's beautiful work check out her blog here.

We will be back Sunday with our last challenge of the month!
